Two 8' x 50' AquaDams® were used to dewater a stream for pipeline repair.
You can see the AquaDam® at the top of the picture. Men are working on the
pipe after the soil has been excavated from around it.
This shows the work area between the two AquaDams®. You can see the high
water mark on the wet soil. The water has been pumped off.
A view from the opposite direction showing the lower AquaDam®. Excess mud
from the excavation of the damaged pipe was placed alongside the AquaDam®.
This gave the AquaDam® a tremendous amount of support, letting it
control considerably deeper water than a freestanding AquaDam®.
The excavation continues. This picture is looking down the stream
from one AquaDam® to the other.
